La Posta "Armando" Bonarda '18

While there has been much speculation of its origin over the years, and while there are many names this varietal goes by, one thing we can all agree on is how popular Bonarda has become under Argentinian viticulture.  In fact it is the second most widely planted varietal in Argentina, right behind Malbec.  Argentina has done a great job at taking almost-forgotten varietals and catapulting them back into the spotlight, as never seen before.

We couldn't think of a better bottling of Bonarda to share with you, other than one that is made by two of Argentina's best winemakers today: Laura Catena and Luis Reginato.  Both pioneering winemakers in their own right, use La Posta to promote distinctive grower-specific wines that invite you to explore diverse Mendoza regions.   La Posta translates to “the tavern,” where the farmers meet to discuss their soils, their vines, and their latest aspirations.  The hard work and skill of the people behind the wines are expressed in La Posta.

In fact, each label acknowledges a family of growers with La Posta.  The "Armando" Bonarda bottling represents Estela Armando and her grandfather’s half-century old Bonarda vineyard.  Bonarda is a late-harvesting varietal, achieving intense coloring and flavor.  This is a wonderful alternative especially for any Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon fans out there.  The flavor of freshly-crushed black and red raspberries is echoed from the nose to the palate, along with notes of leather, dark chocolate, and nuances of oak elements.
